The lives of Ukrainians completely depend on the electricity supply. This was stated by the Advisor to the Minister of Energy in an interview.
Russians do not beat the schedule, - Zerkal about complaints about outage schedules
The supply of water, the ability to cook food, to heat the house depends on the light. So the Russians are actually committing a war crime.
They hit the places that are the most difficult to restore. There is a substation near Kyiv, which has already been destroyed 7 times as a result of shelling. The people who are restoring it are just working and do not know if it will arrive,
- Zerkal noted.
Now Ukrainians complain that the power is turned off not according to the schedule. However, the minister's adviser noted that the enemy launches missiles not on the schedule. Therefore, such situations arise. Employees have to transfer all the voltage to backup lines that are not designed for it.
In addition, people are constantly returning to Kyiv, so the number of people who consume electricity is increasing. In recent weeks, 250 thousand of residents have arrived in the capital. In total, more than 3 million people now live in the capital.
We expect that consumption in December this year will be at the level of December last year, and this is a lot,-
- Zerkal emphasized.
